As the second best selling car in its American lineup, the redesign of the Kia Soul has a lot riding on it, and our spy photographers have caught the next generation of the car out testing. 

A slightly lower roof line and a wider stance look to be the major appearance changes for the new Soul. The nose has also grown a bit, with the Kia grille moving up to accommodate a new larger air intake, and the headlights getting a square shape.

The Soul will likely get it’s power from the 1.6-litre, direct-injected four-cylinder that powers the Rio5, which makes 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque. A larger 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 164 hp and 147 lb-ft of torque may also be available. Sourced from Veloster, the new Soul will probably also get a dual-clutch transmission, and might even have a manual option.
